Let's take it a step further.
Trump has dissed the US secret police and has been cozy with the Russians, threatening neoconservative Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex efforts to oust Assad.
The US neocons need to oust Assad and install their own puppet dictator so that the Russians lose their Mid-Eastern port and the neocons could then move on to the next step of revenge for the Iranian removal of the puppet shah in 1953.
They could Bomb, bomb bomb, bomb, bomb Iran, and the US/Israeli nuclear-power alliance would completely dominate the Mid-East.
The US "intelligence community" has this as a goal, and press releases from the State Dept., Cia, and Defense Dept. promote this agenda which the obsequious US MSM reports as news.
You can believe this MSM news, or you can believe the independent reports from people like Glenn Greenwald, Matt Taibbi, Max Keiser, John McAfee, Stacy Herbert, Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Paul Craig Roberts, Pat Buchanan, and other independent reporters who speak truth to power.
The lives of Iranians and other Mid-Easterners are totally irrelevant to sociopaths like arrogant Defense Secretary Ashton Carter and all his ilk, and although US secret police messed up on Castro, they have killed political leaders all over the world for decades and should be taken seriously.
If Trump doesn't get into lockstep with them he could be dead meat despite having his own private security and jet.
One skeptic's humble opinion.
